Empyrean Throne have unleashed a lyric video for their new track “And None Shall Rise…”, helmed by Scott Rudd (Opeth, Fallujah, Fear Factory). Vocalist Andrew Knudsen said of the track:
“‘And None Shall Rise’ is not only the subsequent single from our upcoming debut album Chaosborne, but the opening salvo in the second act of the record’s story ark. Lovecraft enthusiasts will recognize much of the themes presented within the song, including the barren setting of ice covered dreamworld Polaris. Narratively the somber and treacherous atmosphere of Polaris was a perfect companion for the bombastic arrangement of ‘And None Shall Rise’. At this point in the album’s story, our main character, a knights templar named Mathias, is locked in a battle of wills with beings of the Lovecraftian pantheon. His ideals, sacred truths, and feeble view of the world around him has been fragmented, like a broken mirror that further pains his sanity as he tries to rearrange the pieces. However, with this suffering comes illumination and the awakening of a deeper power within. Everyone experiences agony, but it is within these trials that we are able to unlock hidden parts of our being capable of great feats, strength, and resolve. We hope that you enjoy listening to ‘And None Shall Rise’. Ever vigilant disciples!”
The song is taken from the symphonic black metallers upcoming debut Chaosborne. The effort is due on August 11th through M-Theory Audio. Pre-orders are available at the label’s webstore.
